he Project Assistant offers two ways of importing existing project data:
Option 1) Importing a .bpassist file, which was exported from the app at some point and which contains all information and data ever created/entered inside the app for that specific project. Simply select the "Project Assistant" mode >> click "continue" >> and press "import".
Option 2) Importing from a tab-separated text file. This option may be useful, if you have existing project data, e.g. in an Excel spreadsheet, which you want to transfer into the Project Assistant for further use.
This article deals with option 2 and explains the steps potentially needed before you can refer to the steps explained in the following Youtube video ("Import from file").
The attached documents show the different design options that are available when designing a BVMS system.
For BVMS 10.1, we have extended the blueprints with Person Identification, the Access Management System, and updated the Enterprise overview.
It only depends on the version of BVMS you have.
If you have BVMS 7.5, certain cameras with a certain FW have been tested and are supported.
If you have BVMS 8.0, certain cameras with a certain FW have been tested and are supported.
For BVMS versions of 9.0 or lower, only tested cameras must be added, otherwise we cannot support new setup.
On DIP 3000 you can only upgrade to BVMS 8.0.
The version of Windows installed on it does not support older versions of BVMS, it is not compatible.
Recommended to use BVMS 8.0, the largest version supported on that unit.
You need to make sure that those cameras are on the list of tested devices of the version you have.
Regarding the ONVIF Compatibility of the cameras, please see the following Bosch Knowledge Base article:
DIVAR IP 3000 and DIVAR IP 7000 video management appliances come pre-loaded with the latest available BVMS version from factory.
In order to make use of new VMS features and to attach most current devices, it may be required to perform a software upgrade, when a new BVMS version is available.
In this article it is explained how to do the initial system setup and how you can upgrade the BVMS installation to a newer version on a DIVAR IP 3000 or DIVAR IP 7000 video management appliance.
Initial system setup
Second revision DIVAR IP 7000 systems (DIP-71xx-xxx) allow for Appliance BVMS Installer packages to be imported directly during initial system setup. The following steps have to be performed in order to import a custom Appliance BVMS Installer package on a second revision DIVAR IP 7000 video management appliance:
- Download and unzip the Appliance BVMS Installer archive from http://www.boschsecurity.com - Copy the files Bosch_Appliance_BVMS_Installer_xx.xx.xxxx.exe and Setup-x.x.x.xxx.zip to a folder named “BoschAppliance” on a USB drive - Connect the USB drive to the DIVAR IP 7000 system during initial setup - Proceed with the system setup until the software selection screen is shown - Select the Appliance BVMS Installer version that shall be installed on the system
The following steps have to be performed in order to upgrade an existing BVMS installation on a DIVAR IP 3000 or DIVAR IP 7000 video management appliance: - Download and unzip the Appliance BVMS Installer archive from http://www.boschsecurity.com - Copy the content to a USB drive - When the BVMS default screen is shown, press CTRL + ALT + DEL - Hold down the SHIFT key while clicking Switch User (not Log off) - Log in as BVRAdmin - Transfer the folder that contains the files Bosch_Appliance_BVMS_Installer_xx.xx.xxxx.exe and Setup-x.x.x.xxx.zip from the USB drive to the BVRAdmin desktop - Double click Bosch_Appliance_BVMS_Installer_xx.xx.xxxx.exe inside the transferred folder. - Wait until the BVMS setup screen appears and select the upgrade option - Follow the installation procedure without changing any settings
Notes: - The system may request a reboot and re-login during the installation or upgrade procedure. - The upgrade procedure can alternatively be performed via Remote Desktop connection. - The software upgrade requires a system reboot which results in a short (~ 5 min) recording gap.
Please note that the latest information about the Appliance BVMS Installer for DIVAR IP 3000 and DIVAR IP 7000 can be found in the Release Notes on the product page, under Downloads menu > Literature > Release notes
Intelligent Insights makes use of Bosch cameras’ built-in Video Analytics to interpret video images and collect metadata from cameras. This metadata is collected, aggregated, and displayed using a series of pre-defined widgets within a user defined dashboard to visualize the data. Read on to learn how to add these widgets to the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS) for monitoring.
The Intelligent Insights widgets can be visualized in BVMS Operator Client. In this article we are going to show you how to add a widget to Bosch Video Management System (BVMS).
1. Access the Use cases menu and select the use case to add to BVMS.
In this example we’ll use the “Crowd detection graph”
2. Click the "Copy link" button
3. Next, access the BVMS Configuration Client and select Maps and Structure > Click Manage Resources
4. Click URL > Add a resource name and paste the URL copied from Intelligent Insights > Replace the text "localhost" with the IP address of the Intelligent Insights machine and click OK > OK
5. Click Add Document
6. Select the URL and click OK. The URL should appear under the Logical Tree
7. Click Save and Activate configuration
8. Next, access the BVMS Operator Client and select the tile where you want the widget to be displayed. Double click the widget to assign it
9. After signing in to Intelligent Insights, the widget will be visualized in the tile

The following procedure describes how to restore DIVAR IP 5000 ALL-IN-ONE to the factory default image.
1. Start the unit and press F7 during the BIOS power-on-selftest.
The Recovery menu is displayed.
2. Select one of the following:
– Initial factory setup: restores to factory default image and deletes all data on the HDDs. or
– System Recovery (back to Factory Defaults): restores to factory default image; data on the HDDs will not be deleted.
Note: While the System Recovery option doesn't delete video footage stored on the data HDDs, it still replaces the complete OS ( operating system ) partition (including VMS settings) with a default configuration.
In order to access existing video footage after recovery, the VMS configuration needs to be exported before System Recovery and re-imported afterwards.
Notice! Do not turn off the unit during the process. This will damage the Recovery media.
3. The unit starts from the Recovery media. If the setup is successful, press OK to restart the system.
4. Windows performs the initial setup of the operating system. The unit restarts after Windows has completed the setup.
5. After the restart of the unit, the factory settings are installed.
6. After the system has reboot, the next step is to change the BVRAdmin password. The default one is WSS4Bosch.
When camera is set to auto track (by web interface) to "auto"-> IVA is detecting an object but camera is not following.
Auto tracking works and metadata is displayed only on a stored preposition.
There was a change introduced starting with FW v.7.70.
The new feature is: i-Track only starts on VCA-Alarm.
You can either program this on presets, e.g a detection field or if you want to have Itrack active regardless of its position, you need to activate "global VCA" and assign task detection area "whole screen"
now only activate iTrack "AUXON78" so the eye is in the corner, and your iTrack will always be on sharp
Note: IVA must be active for at least one preset scene in the VCA page on the Settings tab.
If IVA is configured for one scene, then all other scenes have Intelligent Tracking enabled by default. If a scene, however, has Motion+ or IVA 5.5 Flow activated, then Intelligent Tracker is disabled for these scenes.

S imple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a common protocol to monitor the health status of a system. Such a monitoring system typically has a central management server that collect all the data from the system’s compatible components and devices.
A network management server can poll the health status of a device via SNMP requests. This article shows how to configure Bosch cameras in order to be able to answer to such requests.
For more information on SNMP and supported SNMP versions please check - What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support?
Note: Please keep in mind that for SNMP v3 only the the Standard MIB II file is supported. This means that only general network device performance monitoring parameters can be requested. There is no Bosch Private MIB II extension for SNMP v3. For exact support details check - What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support?
